Richard Murdey: Make no mistake, the GM1 is small. For hilarity, go to camerasize.com and compare against a Nikon D4. O_o
More to the point though, its functionally the same size as a Pentax Q7 .. essentially erasing the desirability of the latter. Once the price settles down to the $400 range, as it surely will, the relevancy of the Nikon V2 and Sony RX100ii also fall into question.
"compare to the D4" :: !!! Yes, I did that, too --and it's like the yacht & a dingy towed by it! As others note, though, re overall size, one mustn't ignore the lenses : some primes keep an overall small size but at the expense of FL variety of course (vs. RX100). But, for those who have invested in M4/3 gear, this tiny body can be a nice complement.
FYI, "Sam" isn't a "he" but a she --Samantha, maybe.
NB: **TWO** wasps, but on a tiny nest that insofar as I can see is unable to have yet held any adult (pupa) --the cells simply aren't big enough. This then indicates that these might be sister waps, one joining the other on her nest.
> $1300. What do you get for your money? Well, 'a new dot structure on the leather body trim' and a leather case with 'exclusive carrying strap'.
Wow, once again, Leica proves that they know what really matters in photography --who can doubt it?
burnin: All you need to know about this camera is that the case has a cut-out solely so the Leica label can be seen.
BRAVO for this observation and appropriate remark!!!
It says it all, so blantantly(as if pricing the D-Lux4 nearly double the Pany LX3--and providing a grip only as an option, for more money--didn't make the point equally clearly).
FOR $2500+ with FIXED zoom, I want that zoom to be FAST(-er than 3.5-5.6, common kit-lens for consumer cam.s speed)!
DPR, your comment below
> Canon's answer to the D600, the 20MP 6D, offers a slimmed-down feature set compared to its big brother the 5D Mark II but offers compelling features like built-in GPS and WiFi.
has the wrong model --should (now) be "Mark III", not "II".
And this Nikon guy casually suggesting that the D600 somehow sits nicely between the D800 & D7000 omits the serious hit a DX user w/DX lenses must take in order to be shooting FX!Yes, where IS the wanted "D400" !?
Nit: "Panasonic GF5 specification highlights"should read "... G5 ... ". (to repeat a prior post's similar alert)
Pentax Ricoh is listed as an exhibitor (yea!). [Google]
I'm also interested in what a similar shot would be like: move a little to the right, so that the lamps or perhapsbetter the rightmost edges of the lamp supports are in aline; would this then bring out a line on the left of thelamp posts!?
ps: I presume that aperture was f/5.6 not "56", and a littlesurprised that the shot is as deeply sharp as it is, given that.
Super shot. This is seen in Abstract, but suits even more aptlythe Winter Details challenge. How fortunate we are that youwere w/camera to catch this,thanks,-drofnad

Wow, 8 seconds! With some filter or ... lighting?
This is a striking composition,and I'm also struck by the duration of exposure.
This image is much like the (color) one shown in theWikipedia entry for the derelict mill -- /slightly/ more tothe left (here), with decent foreground footing, and amore dramatic sky.(And I'm looking and thinking /Wow, a WA shot from the(viewer's) right side will capture a lot of vertical elements ... !/
